Master of the gnarniverse. Bold claim for some. Fact-checked humility for the SB165. At home outside the tape, beyond the norm. Taken on the trails nobody talks about. Trusted on the lines where mistakes can't happen. Comfortable with all the chaos. Pleased when you're puckered. Fearless of your fear.
Secure in the Rough
Chainguide ready out of the box. And standard equipment on all SB165 builds.
The SB165 is built tough. The frame meets Yeti DH testing standards, well beyond what others do for a 165mm trail bike. This thing will last for a lifetime, but we gave you a warranty to match just for good measure.
Chair lift, shuttle truck, or self-shuttle, the SB165 doesn't discriminate. If you choose to earn your turns, it's no slouch.
New School Geo for New School Freeride
- Devouring big terrain, the SB165 feels better the faster, steeper and deeper riders go.
- Slacker than most DH bikes—The SB165 loves the steeps.
- Steep Where it Counts—A steeper seat tube angle means pedaling back up isn't a slog.
- Dual crown compatible—Capable and already on Reed's bike.
